Benzene, otherwise known as CAS Number 71-43-2, is a carcinogen, or cancer-causing substance, that is commonly used in the production of gasoline, plastics, synthetic fibers, dyes, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, lubricants, and more. Because it poses such serious health risks, it’s important to be able to recognize the symptoms of benzene exposure and prevent it from occurring.
